The Women’s Harm Reduction Program is for women who use illegal drugs as well as women who use illegal drugs and work in the sex trade. The program was established to reduce the gap between women and men accessing the COUNTERfit Harm Reduction Program. Harm reduction supplies (e.g. needles, crack stems, etc.), basic needs items (tampons, pads, underwear etc.), harm reduction counselling, support services and advocacy, referrals to doctors, nurses, counselors / case managers, detoxes, housing workers, shelters, Hep C education & treatment programs and more. *** Women can register, but are not required to. The COUNTERfit Harm Reduction Program offers client cards with or without a photo for those who want to register with the program. To issue a COUNTERfit Client Card, we need your full name, your date of birth, and the first two letters of your mom or dad’s surname.
